Man Dies After Being Struck By Lightning While Fishing On East Texas Lake

Saturday's storms produced a deadly lightning strike, that took the life of a man fishing on a local lake.
It happened Saturday morning on Lake Fork just north of Quitman, by the Highway 154 bridge. Wood County Sheriff's officials said 52-year-old Peter Dimercurio of Carrollton was fishing with a friend when lightning struck their boat.
Dimercurio fell in to the water. His friend pulled him out, rushed him to the shore for help, but he died at the scene.
